Addicted to Drugs, Alcohol, and Food, Now a Health Hero | Tim Kaufman

Description

Tim Kaufman was a triple addict. Alcohol and drug abuse combined with binge eating nearly claimed his life.

 

Of the three deadly vices, it was food that had its hooks in him the deepest. It is an addiction more powerful than the fentanyl he was abusing. Ditto for what was in the bottomless liquor bottles he consumed each night.

 

Tim was beaten raw by life until he fought back and clawed his way out of a self-made prison. His journey began at rock bottom, and he has soared to new heights as a leader in the plant-based world thanks to his Fat Man Rants.

 

In this episode, Tim joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll to talk about the personal hell he created for himself and how he was able to overcome his demons.

 

The two recovering food addicts discuss their take of "cheat days" and why they are the downfall of good health. Especially after weight loss.

 

Tim is the author of the book Escape: Breaking Free From a Self-Made Prison.
